Seems like quite a decent power packed BlackBerry smart phone. It’s priced at Rs. 27990 in the Indian mobile phone market. The price is lower than BlackBerry Bold which has been priced at Rs. 34990. I’ll still wait for the prices to come down. Way down to be precise!

While Dell might still be some distance away from shocking the iPhone, Toshiba has wowed us with the announcement of it’s TG01 smartphone. The TG01 smartphone from Toshiba offers a really amazing fast processor and a beautiful it-will-make-your-jaw-drop screen. Toshiba’s latest smartphone will feature Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It’ll be the first mobile phone to incorporate this processor. The phone shall also include a 4.1? WVGA resistive touchscreen display with on-screen trackpad, HSDPA, aGPS, G-sensor, microSDHC support and DivX support. If that’s not something wow then what is?!

The handset is expected to run on Windows Mobile 6 with a complete flash support. The phone will be on display at MWC 2009. Let’s see how it kicks some iPhone ass!

Dell is launching smartphones!

Dell is entering the smartphone market soon. At least the rumors say so! Dell’s smartphones, codenamed as ‘MePhone’, would be based on Google’s Android and Windows Mobile platform. The expected date of general availability of Dell’s smartphones is early September 2009 (09/09/09 as per rumors). It is believed that Dell would focus on ‘customizable’ smartphones. Customize what? Hardware, software? Of course there are no obvious details as of now.

I’m personally sick of the so called iPhone killer phones that have only left the iPhone grinning it’s way to glory. We’ll have to wait and watch on how Dell’s smartphone tackles the ever populating smartphone market. RIM’s Blackberry could also feel the heat.

It’ll be more interesting to watch how Dell markets the smartphones in the big Indian mobile phone industry. The high priced iPhone 3G left most of the mobile phone buyers hungry and waiting for an alternative.

Could Dell break the iPhone spell in the mobile phone market? You never know!
